swallow my ghost by ersatz-moon swallow my ghost by ersatz-moon
I rarely remember the bridge and that only lonely evening, where the season was changing its colors, and I stood, like the children stood on snowy days, looking out the window, at those two flocks of geese soaring past the city bridge
I rarely remember the section of the bridge that are your big eyes and straight nose, a smiling mouth with two dimples, the dimples of the boys that are very sweet, but I do not remember this bridge any further.
Easily as the boats sway from dock to dock, the waters cover the time of our life.

it's beautiful, the place you live in and the place in your mind where sweet memory resides.

This photo I feel is quite exceptional among your recent work. I find nostalgia easy to describe in words, but increasingly harder to embody in a photograph or artwork successfully. But it is very clearly done here with the pose and expression. However, I have a few thoughts:

- The leaves coming down from the top of the photograph are nice, but where they obscure your(?) face is not, given that the photo is emotion-driven. Compositionally, they also lead out of frame.

- The flowers to the right are quite vibrant compared to the rest of the picture and attract a lot of attention in my opinion, I feel the vibrancy of the flowers needs to be toned down.

Other than that, I have no other thoughts on this piece. Hope this helps. =)
